    Saab Diesel DPF,Particulate,or Particle, Filter.

    The Saab DPF or diesel particulate filter, is a device designed to remove diesel particulate matter or soot from the exhaust gas of a diesel engine. Saab DPF

    A method exists to clean the filter. This is known as “filter regeneration”and is designed to automatically burn off the accumulated particulate matter. This occurs on motorway-type runs when the exhaust temperature becomes high enough start the regeneration process and thus ignite the soot particles.
    A surprisingly large number of people don’t take their cars anywhere near a motorway so passive regeneration is only going to be possible very occasionally. We have found the problem has mainly been occurring in cars that are driven short distances such as school runs etc. As a result the car never really gets hot enough for the cars systems to initiate the automatic regeneration process that cleans the filter. The result is that the filters become blocked, the “check engine “ light comes on and there is a gradual loss of power.
